How the day works:
Once you have purchased your voucher which is normally valid for 12 months you can book the date of your experience and your time slot anytime before your voucher expires. If you purchased your experience directly with Ultimate Driving Experiences you need to email email@example.com to book the date and time of your experience. If you purchased your voucher via our partners at either Gift Experience, Celestial Gift Experiences or Experience Days you will need to contact Gift Experience on 021 813 6060.
Time slots are every hour and you will need to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your experience to give time for you to sign in and have your briefing.
On arrival at the venue you be greeted by our friendly driver registration team who will register the drivers details and give the driver the details of the day.
Drivers will then be asked to attend a driver briefing which will last for around 20 minutes. The briefing will explain how the day works after the briefing, about the cars and how to drive them and about the circuit and driving techniques to help you while on track.
After the briefing you will be shown to the pit lane and you will need to register with our pit lane coordinator who organises who is next to drive the cars. You will already have an allocated time slot that you booked before the day. We only book in 4 drivers per hour per car so you have time to take photos and take extra laps in the car if you wish!
You will be offered the opportunity to purchase a demonstration lap in our Mini Countryman Cooper S where the instructor will drive you around the circuit to show you the corners before you get in to our supercars. This will save you trying to learn the circuit on the first couple of laps of your experience.
Next is what the day is all about! Its time to drive! A normal driving experience with us allows you to do 3 laps of the circuit in the car(s) that you book. There will be an instructor in the car with you to help you learn the car and the circuit and to get the most out of you allowing you to enjoy the car safely. All of our instructors are current or ex racing drivers who know the car and the circuit well so it is important to listen to them to get the most out of the experience. The instructor will give you a quick briefing in the car to show you all the controls and make sure you are comfortable before you start driving.
After you finish your experience the pit lane coordinator will let you know when it is your turn to drive the other cars you have booked. You can purchase extra drives and passenger rides on the day and if anyone with you wants to drive it is possible to book this on the day.
Passenger rides must be done after you finish driving. Some of our packages include a passenger ride in the Ariel Atom. They can also be purchased on the day for drivers or any spectators that come along with the driver. The best experience is our Ariel Atom Race Experience where 2 of our racing drivers take 2 of you as passengers for a 2 laps race in our awesome Ariel Atoms. It is a must for any adrenalin junkies!
After you have finished your driving and passenger experiences you can collect your certificate from the driver registration staff.
